Explore the history of the Hôtel Lambert, one of the most beautiful private residences in Paris. Built in the early 1640s, this palatial private house was first decorated by the visionaries behind Versailles, including architect Louis Le Vau and painters Charles Le Brun and Eustache Le Sueur. It was the home to various illustrious families from Polish Prince Adam Jerzy Czartoryski and his descendants, to the Baron de Redé and the Rothschilds. Luminaries, artists and writers like Voltaire, Delacroix, Chopin, and Balzac have gathered in its sumptuous salons. After a painstaking restoration by His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Abdullah Al Thani and his family, the Hôtel Lambert was returned to its former glory, and furnished with a trove of treasures. Sotheby’s is proud to present one of the greatest private collections of decorative arts ever assembled and surely the biggest ever to come to auction in the last 50 years.
